Air charter companies

© Parks Canada / J. Zinger

The following companies are available to book with for charter flights. These flights can include transport of river trippers, day flight tours, and more. Please note that planes may only land at designated landing sites (Náįlįcho (Virginia Falls), Gahnîhthah Mñe (Rabbitkettle Lake), Glacier Lake, Bunny Bar, Island Lakes, Honeymoon Lake, and Seaplane Lake). All other landing sites require a permit which you can get, with enough advance notice, by contacting the park office. Also note that making a booking with an airline does not replace making a trip reservation with the national park.
